    View Target Path issue


      I've researched and it seems this was an issue back in CS5 & CS6, but I'm running CC 19.0 and running into it again. Every time I open a new file, View>Show>Target Path turns back on. I almost never want this function on. Is this a bug? or is there a way to keep this from turning back on every time I open an new file?

          Make sure you have the latest Display device driver installed for your display adapted. View>Show>Target Path is a toggle the shows and hides the current active path shortcut Ctrl+Shift+H. here is what I see on my Windows 10 CC 2018 system.

            Thanks! I am seeing the same thing, however, when I toggle it off, it toggles back on whenever I open a new file. It‘s essentially acting as a file setting instead of a program-wide setting. Hope that makes sense.


            I will I’ll look into my driver, but that seems like it won’t be it. It’s not a video/visual issue, but a functional one. It displays correctly, but toggles incorrectly.


            Thanks again!

              Latest drivers are updated and photoshop is up to date. That wasn't the issue. I've actually discovered that it's not only when I open a new file, it's whever I even create a new shape, it reverts back. Here's what's happening:


              Whenever I open a file, View>Show>Target Path is grayed out


              until I create a shape, which is when it toggles to the on position.ss-2.jpg

              I then deselect it


              I create a new shape


              and view>show>target path is back to toggled back on. (this happens every time a create a new shape)





              Any thoughts on this?
